It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you choose either option, there are a few things to remember to be sure that it’s time to stop restoring and start replacing:
- How often does your system break down?
If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start looking into a replacement system. An AC built today will be highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to worry about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer temperatures.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to detect instantly. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
If you’ve observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its final leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice sign that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
